A Hillclimb is an event which takes place on a smooth, sealed surface over an uphill gradient against the clock. Cars start individually at set intervals, however several can be on the course at any one time. A wide variety of cars compete, from single-seaters to standard production saloons divided into classes by types and engine capacity.
Venues range from picturesque private estates to seaside promenades.
Burnham-on-Sea Motor Club currently promotes three Hillclimbs, two at Wiscombe Park, the first of the year Wildlife Wiscombe Hillclimb in May and the second Five Clubs Wiscombe Hillclimb in September. The third is Three Clubs Hillclimb at Charmouth.
